Raghu Mukherjee and Minal Patil in Paris Pranaya
  Paris Pranaya film review

One of the brilliant films that hit the big screen this week in the form of 'Paris Pranaya' directed by Minal Patil in Paris Pranayaace director Nagathihalli Chandrashekhar. Always known for new experiments and the touch of excellence, Nagathi has panned his viewpoint towards east this time. Person who gave super hit films like America America and Nanna Preethiya Hudugi which was shot mainly in the US, now has picturized Paris Pranaya in many parts of Europe namely Paris, Rome, Spain and Southern France in its splendor as well as Vishwa Kannada Sammelana in America. He carries the films on his shoulder as a director, storywriter, lyricist, dialogs, and whats more even as an actor! Of course, equal credits goes to rest of the crew including music, cinematography and the artists' troupe. The perfection in fusing Indian and European culture, music and the kind of comparison and justifications he makes in his narration shows his homework.

There are many films in the past that revolves around a village girl and city boy. But handling such story line to suite current trend and the taste of young generation certainly requires a great level of expertise. So is Paris Pranaya which starts with a traditional family of H.K. Master (Rajesh) who is a music maestro. And his grand daughter Poorvi (Minal Patil) is a singer too. Her uncle Adithya (Sharth Lohithashwa) who works for a recording company involved in music piracy in Paris plots a plan to get Poorvi to Paris. She meets an Indian boy Kris alias Krishna (Raghu Mukherjee) in her music college.
'One foot' distance between their friendship gradually vanishes and both of them fall in love. But this leads to a problem as Adithya's 45 year old boss Hari wanted to marry her for which this drama of bring her to Paris was Raghu Mukherjee and Minal Patil in Paris Pranayaplayed by her uncle. Kris manages to escape Poorvi from this trap but due to unexpected conditions, they dispel and Poorvi returns to India. Kris follows her and reaches her village. Will he be able to convince Poorvi's family? Will Poorvi accept him back? How is Kris ect uncovers at the end.

Nagathihalli excels once again in Paris Pranaya through sharp dialogs, sober comedy apart from introducing two new talents to Kannada film industry in the form of Raghu Mukherjee and Minal Patil. Both have done a good job especially Raghu with tap dance and Minal in classical dance. Music by Prayog is a welcoming experiment including the title song and 'Krishna nee begane baaro…' song by Shreya and Mysore Ananthswamy's 'Ede Thumbi Haadidenu…' song by Nanditha in its original tune. Choreography and cinematography lend adequate support as well. Tara steals the show as 'Cell Sita' Sharath Lohitashwa, Sudha Delawadi, Sundarraj, Rajesh, Sumalatha have extended their equal support making the film a treat.
